Whoa, this short video on the top ten languages really surprised me. I find it hard to believe that French was in the tenth spot, and although I was hoping that English would be in the first spot, I'm not surprised to find out that it came in second place:

Comments or Opinions anyone???

Thanks for the link : I've noted this link and answer to it now.
Unfortunately, about french being at the tenth place isn't very surprising for me : at the end of the 19th century it was still the Diplomatic language but now...During the 18th century, all the different kingdoms were speaking less or more french language but now...
I can't see the link anymore : which language is first ? Spanish I suppose !

Unfortunately the link doesn't seem to go to that video anymore, so here's an alternate link.

And my hunch was right - Mandarin is the top language in the world. Not surprising one bit.

Nice article. I like that they explain why the language is in the position it is in as opposed to just listing them.

Yes, the explanations are great and permit us to understand better about it.
